CHILL OUT AT… SNEAK A PEEK AT…

ZoomEarth HOT NEW GEAR

Trail (UK) - - Base Camp -

Keep an eye on www.lfto.com and Trail’s Face­book and Twit­ter feeds over 28-31 Jan­uary to eye­ball the new­est kit for 2018 tak­ing a bow at the ISPO trade show in Munich. Trail will be re­port­ing live from the show – and you can catch up on events later at your leisure. Ex­pect zingy bright colours, cool fab­rics and pos­si­bly the odd sausage and stein of Helles lager... Google Earth? Soooo last year. And of lim­ited use when it comes to plan­ning a trip to the hills around the weather as the im­agery is of­ten months (or years) old. No such prob­lem with ZoomEarth: on here there are two new satel­lite im­ages ev­ery day, en­abling you to check out lo­cal con­di­tions for snow and cloud cover. Res­o­lu­tion isn‘t great (it clicks into stan­dard hi-res be­yond a cer­tain zoom level), but it’s per­fect for check­ing out a lo­ca­tion’s nick in near-live im­agery. www.zoom.earth
